The rich colours of the Australian Mookaite gives the lovely impression of a 'bouquet' of bright coloured roses. St Therese's famous words from her autobiography, "A Story of a Soul" were: "I will let fall a shower of roses from heaven." The 'shower of roses' represented the graces she had interceded for and she certainly has stayed true to her word as she is known for presenting to her devotee a rose, in some way, whether real or an image, at the end of novenas to her or after special prayers in general. Such a tangible saint!
